These are great!

I like to squeeze some fresh lime juice over them and then sprinkle with a mix of salt, sugar and chili powder.... :)

An old favorite of mine! To make it easier to turn over, I spray a piece of foil and lay it on top of them and flip the whole tray over onto a plate and slide it back onto baking sheet
